Gamers are a quasi-zealous bunch with regards to their passion du jour. As such, it's but par for the course to find them festooning their asses with Pac Man and his archaic antics, or an anomalous Quake slogan in their cleavage, as a salutation to their inexorable devotion. There is, alas, the caveat that's inherent with all such body-savaging artistry: Should you exhort an overweight ginger dude to brand some passé ballache like Top Cat onto your testicle (a service he will perform with disconcerting gusto as he sweats through his shirt. And yours), it's an incontrovertible decision. (We'd venture that Mario would be a rather more pertinent adornment for your man-meat. In tandem with that ubiquitous mushroom growth sound effect, you'll have quite the sexy ensemble for bedroom antics. "It's amusing...and arousing!" Except it isn't. And it isn't.)

We must endeavor, then, to select designs that won't repulse our grandchildren when our skin is as be-wrinkled as a scrotum. When they visit us in the home, which seemingly resides in its own private miasma of piss-stench, what shall they behold upon our decrepit flesh? Revel in the copious collection of video game tattoos above for some impending preposterous pensioners.
